Audit Tool: A Method for Determining Level of Need for Support to Improvement - The District Audit Tool was designed to assist in formulating intensity and focus of technical assistance by helping states: (1) prioritize which districts failing to meet AYP requirements require the most intense and immediate assistance; (2) quantitatively and qualitatively judge the status of these districts against the research-based elements that represent successful schools and districts; (3) identify their short, medium and long term needs to improve student learning; (4) assign/confer with districts on a plan for how, when, and by whom technical assistance will be delivered and progress will be monitored on plan implementation.
